* The laser cutters, metal-turning lathe, welder and CNC are subject to an additional one-off training fee, which goes towards paying for the initial cost of the equipment. Due to the high cost of replacing consumable parts in the laser cutters, there is also a per-hour usage charge. Use of the 3D printers is charged by the final print weight, this helps cover maintenance costs.
